Baby high up on the back made me free to cook, and do whatever else (pick berries, weed the garden, etc).  

 

Well, you're more skilled than me, I guess. LOL. I WAS wearing him high up in a tightly-wrapped wrap. He still got in the way of the sink. Maybe I'm just short and/or he was long? 

 

In the end, we kept the babywearing for outings mostly. (Not that he wasn't almost always with me besides, but he was on my lap for nursing and naps and such at home.)

I wasn't trying to sound superior, just wanted to share what worked for me.

You're absolutely right. My apologies. It's been one of those days. I'm sorry.
